My story

Name : Willow
DOB: October 9, 2021
Good with dogs : Yes
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: Older children who will respect her boundaries
Foster Location: Edmonton

History : Willow / Luca ( foster name ) was born in our care and adopted out as an 8 week puppy. Unfortunately she didn’t have proper training / boundaries set out for her and she developed some quirks and returned to us.

Description: Hiya! I'm Willow and I am super excited to meet you! I am very playful and love long hikes through the woods 🙂 My crate is my safe place and I only have occasional accidents in the house. I can sit and am learning stay and lay down but it's so hard because I just want to explore everything! Mom says I just have some growing up to do still, I'm only 6 months old after all. I know that toys are for chewing and shoes are not. Mom says I'm doing really good with leash training because I'm so food motivated! I do get excited to see other people and doggos just because I want to play with everyone 🙂 I am working very hard to stay beside my foster mom and not jump on people. There are a couple things I will need help with still: I am afraid of towels touching my paws when I need my feet dried and need someone to continue showing me they’re not going to hurt me. I have come along way with guarding my food but I need an adopter that will continue working with me to help me understand they won’t take my food away and I can relax. I am really a sweet lovable girl who wants nothing more than to be someone’s best friend. The girls at the rescue say that they are willing to pay for a session with a good trainer to get me and my family started out on the right foot !!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

First we require an Adoption Application to be sent in. This Application is our initial screening process where you must submit 3 references (whom are not family). If your application is acceptable, we will schedule a meet and greet/home check with the dog and all of your family must be present. If your meet and greet/home check is approved, we take a day to decide whether this adoption is right for the dog, if it is, we require an adoption fee of $400.00 which includes Spay/Neuter, up to date vaccinations and de-wormer and microchip.
